A recent issue of this paper pub published an extract from the Omaha World-Herald, the copy for which was furnished by me. The Independent man thinks this was by a "concerted action" on the part of Republican pa pers. My part in connection with t his article had nothing to do with its publication elsewhere. I saw the ar ticle quoted in print several months ago, and if the editor of the Inde pendent would read a few good Re publican newspapers lie would not be so far behind the times in news. After the article first came out and became general public news, Congressman KirWpatrick wrote a personal letter to the World-Herald calling the atten tion of the managing editor of that paper to the sentiment ex pressed in the clipping alluded to, asking if Mr. Bryan concurred in that kind of sentiment, etc. Ko reply has been received to that query up to this date. The World-IIerald knows full well that the statement is being used as showing Mr. liryan's attitude to ward the- old soldier. It makes no difference whether Mr. Bryan was editor of the paper at the time the arliele appeared or not. He soon afterward became its editor, knowing full well the course the paper had pur sued on the pension question. He gave the paper no change of heart on that question, and his own record in congress and out of it is not sue!) as to justify the belief that he is the soldier's friend. I did not say that he wrote the article, but expressed the belief that he concurred in the senti ments: and I think the history of the paper before and since Mr. Bryan be came its editor fully warrants the conclusion Kow, a word as to the statement in last week's Independent relative to Mr. Burton's statement of 150 changes in France's ratio. The Encyclopedia liritannica is quoted correctly and learnedly. Probably far more so than Mr. liurton's statement. What Mr. Burton probably said was that France had changed her monetary laws 150 times trying to maintain a double standard with gold and silver, and each at a parity. Mr. Burton is right and the Independent is wrong. "ot only has France changed herown laws many times trying to keep gold and silver in circulation, but several con ventions or the states composing the Latin union, of which France is one. have been held looking to the same thing. France adopted the gold staa dard in 1S73, and I have authority for the statement that during the 70 years prior to that date tue French parliament changed the coinage laws 113 times. If there is proof to the contrary, please cite it, and I will be very glad indeed to correct myself and the readers of the AYorld, and pay the editor of the Independent a liberal compensation for his time and trouble in fnrnishing me authoritive information. - The money question is one which ought not to be a partisan matter. It affects the business inter ests of all alike, whether he be rich or poor, and I have no desire to seo it settled in any other than a fair way one which will work injustice to uo I one. It cannot be done by misqiiot l ins? facts or by ijriMriiiir the experience ! and teacliiinfs of other nations and of history. For that reason the exieri j enee of France, is valuable. The only ' way that France maintain her lare silver circulation is bv having a inuch larger gold circulation. That is the only method of retaining silver in cir culation in any country under the present bullion values of goUi and sil ver, unless we adopt a silver standard, which "means that we will drive the K-oid out of circulation. I have never knowingly presented an untrue state ment of fact in this paper for the pur pose, of coloring the white truth or of misleading anyone. A. 1. Crooks. A TEW CONTJNDBUMS. To the Editor of the Independent in particu lar, or any free-silver advocate: 1. Why is every free-coinage coun try in the world on a silver standard ? Why do the silver-standard coun tries not use gold along with silver as money ? 3. Whv does everv gold-standard country in the world not only have silver in circulation along with its gold, but has more silver money, as a rule, than the silver standard coun tries? 4. Whv is there not a free-coinage country in the world that has one- third or the per caoita circulation that the United States tias to-day? 5. Whv would it not be better for the United States to maintain the gold standard and thereby maintain three kinds of money: gold, silver and paper, than to adopt free coinage and the silver standard and drive gold out of circulation, as has been done in every free-coinage country in the world ? ti. If an error of a small percent, in the ratio kept gold out of circul.i- tion from 17!2 until 1837. and then another small error kept silver out of circulation from 1837 to 1853 under free coinage, would not an error of nearly 50 per cent, keep gold out of circulation now if we had free coin age ? If vou undertake to answer the above questions, please be specific name countries, give amounts or vari ous kinds of money in circulation, and state that Russia, which is nominally a silver-standard country, is prepar ing tor the gold standard, which ac counts for the large stock of gold on nana in mat country. , Don't Care for tJie Soldier Vote. If all reports are true Mr. Napoleon Bonaparte McCormick. the l'opocrat nominee for congress in the Sixth district, has got himself into those troubles which always dogs the foot steps of a falsifier and humbug. It is charged that Mr. McCormick has been representing himself as an old soldier. Wlien questioned as to the regiment he served in. he replied that it was the Twenty-seventh Pennsylvania cavalry, but "when his attention was called to the fact that Pennsylvania had no such regiment he amended to the Thirteenth cavalry. Some of the old soldiers set an inquiry on foot and soon leared from the adjutant general of Pennsylvania that no such person as 2s. 11. McCormick had ever be longed to the Thirteenth cavalry. Armed with this information the edi tor of the Cawker City Republican sought out Mr. McCormick and asked him for a statement. The only reply the editor could secure was: "I am not legging for the soldier vote this year. ' t he editor called Mr. McCor mick s attention to the fact that the charge had been made specifically and authoritatively that he was masquer ading as an old soldier, and suggested to him that some explanation was certainly due on his own behalf. To this the accused simply responded again: "I am not begging the old sol dier vote this year." It is related that as a sequel to this interview one of the Grand Army Posts in the Sixth district has set on foot an investiga tion of whether McCormick has ever worn a Grand Army badge. There is law in Kansas inflicting a severe pen alty upon people who wear badges of an order to which they do not belong, and it proposed to call Mr. McCor mick to account under it if he is guilty. Kansas City Journal. The Independent last week raised the same old cry "the plutocrats are buying our voters!" Would resents any and all such imputation upon the character of the honest voters of the Populist parties. We believe the great mass of our political opponents are honest, but like such voters in all parties they are open to conviction. That they are being convinced of the insincerity of Popocratic leaders is becoming more and more apparent every day. Certain it is that no "bureau of correspondence" is neces sary for their purchase and none lias been organized. The cowardly insin uation of the Independent is"a mud slinging boomerang.
